The photograhpy competition is organized by the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS).
The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) is looking for the best photographs from around the world that depict weather in its widest sense. From weather phenomena to the impact of weather, we are looking for stunning images that showcase the sometimes dramatic, often fascinating impact and story of weather.
For the Royal Meteorological Society’s Weather Photographer of the Year we are looking for images that capture the beauty, power, occasional absurdity and fragility in the face of human activity. This could include:
precipitation such as rain, snow or hail
frost or ice
optical phenomena such as rainbows, fogbows, halos, sundogs etc
Images can also capture the impact of weather on people and our surroundings, such as:
The Royal Meteorological Society Young Weather Photographer of the Year Award (for photographers 17 and under only) aims to encourage and recognise the younger generation of weather photographers and is an important element of the competition’s ethos.
There are no individual subject categories to worry about; the judges will choose the image that impresses them most. And there is nothing preventing you from entering the main Weather Photographer of the Year competition too, as this competition has no age restriction.
You can upload up to 5 images. Images should have been taken within the last three years from the competition closing date – so since 5 June 2015.
